REPORTS OF CITY OFFICERS. 

His Honor, the Mayor, submitted his re-

?«2S» f u r - ^ he week en <*ing September 28,

The following communication: 

Mayor's Office. ) 
Chicago, Sept. 28th, 1896. J 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen— My attention, in common 
with that of the community generally, is 
continually directed to the character of our 
water supply. The Health Department 
furnishes daily reports of its analysis, 
showing frequent pollutions, and these are 
corroborated by the reports of deaths from 
typhoid fever and from other diseases 
caused by impure water. A striking con- 
trast is presented in the respective figures 
of New York and this city. The Health 



September 28,] 



970 



[1896. 



Department furnishes me the following 
statement: 

Average number of deaths in New York 
since August 1st, has been 29.02 per thou- 
sand. 
For Chicago, 16.12 per thousand. 
Excess of New York general death rate 
over Chicago, 80 per cent. 

Death from typhoid fever in New 
York, 57. 
Death from typhoid fever in Chicago, 91. 
Excess of Chicago typhoid deaths over 
New York, 58 per cent. 

Thus, while Chicago, is tar more health- 
ful naturally than New York, its deaths 
from the impure filth diseases due to filth 
pollution of our water are more than double 
those of ^ew York. 

During the first nine months of this year, 
the general public water supply has aver- 
aged "good" only a little more than one- 
half the time-57 per cent. The Lake View 
supply has averaged 'good" only one third 
the time, and in the area supplied by it, 
typhoid fever has been most prevalent and 
most fatal. 

Obviously it is the duty of the admin- 
istration, of which the City Council is an 
important part, to take some action in the 
premises and to do so promptly. The 
question is a complicated one and should 
receive the careful study and considera- 
tion of the best intelligence. 

I ask the concurrence of the City Council 
in the creation of a Special Committee of 
the Council to- act in connection with the 
various city departments and representa- 
tives of the Sanitary District and the 
Federal Government, before whom shall be 
laid the projects already matured by myself 
and the Commissioners of Public Works 
and of Health looking to prompt relief of 
the conditions affecting the public water 
supply. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Geo. B. Swift, 
Mayor. 



In connection with the foregoing com- 
munication, by consent Aid. Campbell 
presented an order providing for the ap- 
pointment of a special committee of seven 
to act in accordance with the communica- 
tion of His Honor, the Mayor, and moved 
its passage. 

The motion prevailed. 



The following is the order as passed: 
Ordered, That a committee of seven 
members of this Council be appointed by 
the Chair who^together with the Mayor 
shall be a special committee £ take into 
consideration and report to this Council, 
as soon as practicable, the details of a plan 
for the improvement of the quality of the 
water supply of the city, and to devise and 
report a plan for the construction of any 
and all such intercepting sewers as shall 
be necessary to divert the sewerage of the 
city into the Drainage Canal when the 
same shall be completed. 

His Honor, the Mayor, thereupon ap- 
pointed the following Committee: 

Aid. Campbell,

The following communication: 

Chicago, Sept. 28th, 1896. 

To the Honorable Mayor and City Coun- 
cil of the City of Chicago : 
Gentlemen— We submit herewith an 
amendment to the ordinance of the North- 
western Elevated Railroad Company, al- 
lowing it to withdraw the one hundred 
thousand dollars' worth of city bonds, now 
deposited with the City Treasurer, in ac- 
cordance with our ordinance, and to re-

sale of the city bonds in completing the

erection of the balance of the road, as 
rapidly as possible, which, owing to the 
financial stringency at the present time, 
we have been unable to do. 

The city's interests are fully cared for 
by the substitution of two hundred thou- 
sand dollars' worth of the bonds of this 
company, as we have already expended on 
right of way and structure over five 
millions of dollars. 

We trust early action may be taken by 
the City Council, so that we can get the 
iron now on the ground erected before the 
severe winter weather comes on. 
Yours very truly, 

D. H. Louderback, 
President.

The motion prevailed. 

The Corporation Counsel submitted the 
following opinion: 

Chicago, October 19th, 1896. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the 
City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen — On the 5th inst. your 
Honorable Body referred to this office a 
proposed order of the Council declaring a 
forfeiture of the rights of the Northern 
Electric Street Railroad Company in West 
47th street, West 48th street, North 56th 
street, West North avenue and Grand 
avenue, and requested this office to furnish 
an opinion as to whether or not said order, 
if passed, would be legal. The matter has 
been referred to me, and in reply 1 beg to 
say: 

The ordinance of the Northern Electric 
Company, passed July 23rd, 1894, (p. 1107 
Council Proceedings of that date) contains 
no provision for the forfeiture of the Com- 
pany's rights for a failure to run cars, and 
contains no provision requiring cars to be 
run over said company's tracks at any 
specific and stated intervals. The ordi- 
nance therefore does not within itself 
make provision for any contingency upon 
which the City ,Couneil may declare a 
forfeiture of the rights therein granted. 1 
am of the opinion, that wherever a rail- 
road company abandons any given track, 
and without any good excuse therefor, 
omits to furnish public transportation for 
an unreasonable time, that the City Coun- 
cil might properly and legally cause the 
tracks to be removed. I find on investi- 
gation of this matter that on the 24th of 
August, 1896, the Superintendent of Sewers 
notified the representatives of the company 
to remove their electric wires and poles on 
West 48th street, from Thomas street to 
North avenue, for the purpose of permit- 
ting the construction of the sewer now 
being built in that locality. I am also in- 
formed by the representatives of the com- 



pany, as well as the contractor for the 
sewer, that it was impossible to do the 
excavating for the sewer with the ma- 
chinery being used for that purpose with- 
out the removal of the wires and poles, as 
well as very serious disturbance to the 
tracks and roadbed of said company ;that the 
work is still in progress, and at a point or 
points near the middle of the line of said 
company, so that it is impossible for it to 
run cars along its entire route at this time. 
This condition of things being produced 
by the City of Chicago, and by the con- 
tractors for the sewer, who must be re- 
garded as the city's agents, it is my opinion 
that it would not be within the power of 
the City Council at this time to declare a 
forfeiture of the company's rights. I be- 
lieve that the courts would hold such an 
ordinance unreasonable under the existing 
circumstances. If, however, the company 
hereafter fails to use due and reasonable 
diligence in getting its tracks, poles and 
wires into proper condition, so as to afford 
public transportation, and if such action 
on the part of the company should con- 
tinue for an unreasonable time, 1 think the 
Council could properly take action in the 
premises. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Geoege A. Duput, 
Ass't. Corporation Counsel. 
Which was placed on file. 

The Clerk presented a list of claims 
(submitted by the Clerk of the Finance 
Committee) of sundry persons for special

Department of Public Works, )

To the Honorable, the Mayor and City 
Council: 

Gentlemen— 1 beg to call the attention 
of your Honorable Body to the necessity of 
an emergency appropriation of $20,000 for 
the operation and maintenance of the Canal 
Pumping Works. The appropriation, as 
asked for by this department, viz., 
$71,220.00, was based upon the actual esti- 
mated cost of operating this plant, but this 
estimate was cut down to $53,000.00, so that 
a shortage has resulted. 

I would respectfully recommend this 
emergency appropriation, and request that 
the same be made at once, as the appropria- 
tion is now overdrawn to the extent of 
about $1,000 00.

tomary in the past to issue such permits

able Body deems it advisable to authorize 



the erection of such structures I would 
respectfully request the passage of the fol- 
lowing order: 

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Pub- 
lic Works be and he is hereby directed to 
issue permits for what are commonly 
known as storm doors, within the city,

force as he may deem necessary in so 
doing.

tion, for the week ending November 9, 1896,

Placed on file. 



The following communication: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
Chicago, November 9;h, 1896. ) 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— There is imperative need 
of additional pumping machinery in the 
so-called Lake View water works. The 
supply of water from this pumping station 
is inadequate to the needs of the territory 
dependent upon it, and if the single pump 
there located should at any time become 
seriously disabled, the condition of this 
territory would be most unfortunate. I 
recommend that authority be at once given 
by your Honorable Body to provide this 
station with necessary additional pumping 
machinery at the earliest practicable mo- 
ment. 

Yery respectfully yours, 

Geo. B. Swift, 
Mayor. 

Which was referred to the Committee on 
Finance.

Commissioners does hereby take under its 
control, with power to regulate, control 
and govern in the same manner as it may 
govern other parks or boulevards under its

in the Town of South Chicago, in the City 
of Chicago, and known as the Lake Front 
Park, or Lake Park, except, however, that 
portion of said Lake Park lying north of 
the north line of Jackson street extended 
on a straight line east from Michigan ave- 
nue to the Illinois Central Railroad Com- 



pany's right of way, and west of the right 
o way of said Illinois Central Railroad 
Company; including all land which may 
be hereafter reclaimed adjoining said park, 
and all right and control in and over any 
reclaimed land, and any and all water 
rights in connection with the said park; 
subj ct, however, to the conditions and

passed by the City Council of the City of

titled, "An ordinance granting consent to

concurrence of your Honorable Body.

Aid . McCarthy moved to concur in the 
appointment. 
The motion prevailed. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
November 21, 1896. S 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen— 1 herewith return, with- 
out my approval, an order passed Novem- 
ber 16th, 1896, for the tearing down and 
removing of building situated on the south 
side of 60th street, between Champlain and 
St. Lawrence avenues, for the following 
reasons: 

This property is now in the hands of the 
court, and as areceiver has been appointed 
to take charge of it legal complications 
would arise should it be undertaken to 
enforce the carrying out of this order. 
Second, it seems somewhat doubtful as to 
whether or not this building comes under 
the terms and conditions applicable to 
those that were erected at the time of the 
Fair and that the city has the right to 
order that the same be torn down. 
■ Respectfully, 

Geo. B. Swift, 
Mayor. 

Aid. Finker moved to reconsider the 
vote by which the order referred to in 
the veto message of His Honor, the Mayor, 
was passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. O'Neill moved that the order be re- 
ferred to the Committee on Streets and 
Alleys, S. D. 

The motion prevailed. 



ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
Chicago, November 23rd, 1896. J 

To the Honorable the City Council: 

Gentlemen— 1 feel constrained to re- 
turn, without my approval, the order 



passed by your Honorable Body at its last 
meeting permitting electric companies to 
erect poles and wires in the Twentieth 
ward. It is plain that this permission has 
been sought primarily, if not wholly, by 
citizens of the ward who desire lighting 
facilities which they apparently cannot 
otherwise obtain at the present time, on 
account of the expense involved in laying 
underground conductors, and that it is 
earnestly supported by both the Aldermen 
from the ward; but, viewed from the stand- 
point of the welfare of the entire city, it 
seems to me a dangerous precedent. Poles 
and overhead wires are admitted to be ob- 
jectionable in the thickly occupied portions 
of the city, except where they cannot well 
be avoided with due regard to the welfare of 
the locality or of the community, and 1 do 
not think this is such an exceptional case. 
If additional poles and wires are to be per- 
mitted in the Twentieth ward, why should 
they not be permitted in parts of the ad- 
j acent wards on the east and south, where 
citizens who would be directly benefited 
thereby might ask for them ? And where 
could the impassable line ultimately be 
drawn ? There are many poles and wires 
in the Twentieth ward now, as well as in 
other parts of the city, and we should be 
diminishing rather than increasing the 
number. I regret that the citizens inter- 
ested must be deprived of electric lighting 
facilities, but, ior the reasons stated, I can- 
not approve the order. 

Very respectfully yours, 

Geo. B. Swift, 
Mayor. 

Aid. Probst moved to reconsider the 
vote by which the order referred to in 
the veto message of His Honor, the Mayor, 
was passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Probst moved that the order be 
placed on file. 

The motion prevailed. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office, \ 
November 23d, 1896. 5 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the 

City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — At the last meeting of 
your Honorable Body an ordinance was 



November 23,J 



1121 



[1896. 



passed, reciting that the grade of Avenue 
K (formerly known as Ewing avenue) be- 
tween 99th and 100th streets had been pre- 
viously established at 12 feet above city 
datum, and requiring certain railroad com- 
panies crossing the street to raise their 
tracks so as to conform to such grade. The 
Commissioner of Public Works has had 
several conferences with people and prop- 
erty owners in the locality concerned, and 
with the railroad companies affected, and 
he advises me that it is preferable to have 
the grade of Avenue K at the point where 
the railroads cross it 10.04 feet instead of 
12 feet, and that this grade he understands 
is satisfactory to all interested. Accord- 
ingly I return the ordinance without my 
approval, in order that a substitute ordi- 
nance may be passed in accordance with 
the suggestions of the Commissioner of 
Public Works, making this slight change 
in the grade of Ewing avenue, and requir- 
ing the railroad companies to conform to 
the newly established grade. 1 have 
caused to be prepared a substitute ordi- 
nance which 1 herewith submit, and whose 
passage I recommend. 

Very truly yours. 

Geo. B. Swift, 
Mayor. 

Aid. Howell moved to reconsider the 
vote by which the ordinance referred to in 
the veto message of His Honor, the Mayor, 
was passed.

ject matter be referred to the Committee on

Chicago, July 21, 1896. 
To the Honorable, the Corporation Coun- 
sel, William O. Beale: 
Deab Sib— 1 wish to submit the follow- 
ing report in regard to the advisability of 
constructing a subway under the L. S. & 



.November 23, 



1145 



[1896. 



M. S. and C., ft. I. & P. tracks at 21st 
street, at an expense of $25,000. As com- 
pared with, the possible expense that may 
be caused by the city through damage 
suits, it is necessarily purely a matter of 
opinion, as there has never been any test 
in this class of cases. But as regards 21st 
St., it seems to me the city can make a 
great saving in refusing to build this sub- 
way, although a subway at each street in- 
tersection would undoubtedly be a great 
improvement over the policy of placing 
them at the intersection of the most im- 
portant streets. 

Upon investigation I find that 21st st. is, 
perhaps, more fortunately located than a 
great many others, as it has a subway at 
22nd St., one block to the south and one on 
Archer ave., only 250 ft. north. From this 
you will see that traffic will not be sub- 
jected to inconvenience or loss of time ex- 
cept in reaching points due east or west, 
and as it is to be supposed that the destina- 
tion sought is the central part of the city, 
the actual time loss would be very small. 

The city undoubtedly ? has a better de- 
fense west of the tracks than east, because 
of the fact that La Salle st joins the rail- 
road right of way on the west and. parallels 
it at this point and for several blocks to the 
north and south, thus affording ample 
means of access to and egress from all of 
this property. It can also be clearly shown 
that residents at this point are effected in 
no way differently than others on 21st 
street, at points farther west, and I believe 
that it also can be shown that the time it 
now takes to cross the tracks, taking into 
consideration the greater distance to be 
traveled, is no greater than when they 
crossed at grade and were subjected to the 
delays caused by passing trains, and when 
we take into consideration the great dangers 
avoided we can arrive at but one conclu- 
sion as to whether the present arrangement 
is better than the old. 

If judgments cannot be* obtained west of 
the tracks because of the ample facilities, 
there is but little to fear on 21st east as the 
distance is but about 75 feet between the 
tracks and Clark street, and as this prop- 
erty derives its principal value from its 
frontage on Clark street, it would not be 
impaired in value to any great extent, and 
even if it amounted to a total loss there 
would be a great saving as compared with 



the cost of building a comparatively use- 
less subway at an expense of $25,000. 
The above is respectfully submitted. 
Yours truly, 

Louis H. Stafford. 



November 2nd, 1896. 

Wm. O. Beale, Esq., Corporation Coun- 
sel: 

Dear Sir— I wish to submit the follow- 
ing report, in accordance with a request 
from the Commissioner of Public Works 
hereto attached, in reference to the advisa- 
ability of the construction of a subway at 
21st street, under the tracks of the L. S. & 
M. S. and C, ft. I. & P. ft, ft. Cos. 

After a careful examination by Mr. Staf- 
ford, one of our real estate experts, and a 
consultation with him thereon, f am of the 
opinion that it is not advisable to make this 
subway. There is a subway already built 
at 22nd street, only one block south of the 
property in question, and one upon Archer 
avenue, only 250 feet north. I do not think 
that this property is depreciated in value 
through the construction of this improve- 
ment to such an extent that it would cost 
$25,000, the amount of the cost of the sub- 
way, to pay the property owners any dam- 
ages they may have suffered, if any should 
appear. For the above reasons, therefore, 
1 would recommend that the subway 
should not be built. A report to the above 
effect was made by me during the month of 
July. Upon request, however, the matter 
was re- referred for another report. A sub- 
sequent investigation, however, only re- 
confirms me in my previous opinion. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Frank Hamlin, 
Assistant Corporation Counsel. 



November lltb, 1896. 
Hon. Martin B. Madden, Chairman of 
Finance Committee, City Council: 
Dear Sir— On the 24th of last June there 
was submitted to this office a request for 
some information and suggestions relating 
to the question of opening a subway under 
the tracks of the Lake Shore and the Rock 
Island Railroad Companies at 21st street. 
Subsequently a report upon the matter was 
sent in from this office. In some way, 
which 1 do not quite understand, the mat-

ter seems to be here again, and Mr. Ham- 
lin has submitted to me a second report 
dated November 2d, which I enclose (to- 
gether with other papers). In my opinion 
the city will not suffer any serious 
damages by the closing of 21st street. I do 
not believe that any such damages would 
be at all comparable to the cost of building 
the subway. Upon examining the records 
of this office I do not find but two claims 
thus far asserted against the city for dam- 
ages to property in this locality. One of 
them which has been sued upon relates to 
property at the corner of Wentworth ave- 
nue and 20th street, and the complaint is 
against the entire track elevation improve- 
ment in that neighborhood, and not merely 
against the closing of 21st street. The 
other (claim of Charles W. Nicholes and 
others) relates to property west of 21st 
street, and was adversely reported upon by 
this office, which report was concurred in 
by the Finance Committee. 

Very respectfully yours, 

Wm. G. Beale, 
Corporation Counsel.

The following is the report: 

Chicago, November 23, 1896. 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City 
of Chicago in Council Assembled: 

Your Special Committee, to whom were 
referred certain charges made on the floor 
of the Council on the night of Monday, 
July 18, 1896, by Alderman William Kent, 
of the Fifth Ward, against Alderman John 
Powers, of the Nineteenth Ward, respect- 
fully beg to report that it met Saturday, 
November 21, 1896, at 10:30 o'clock A. M., 
and then and there called before it said 
Aid. Wm. Kent, of the Fifth Ward, and 
from the evidence adduced, so far as said 
charges are concerned, your committee 
finds and reports as follows, to- wit: 

That Alderman William Kent, of the 
Fifth Ward, says that he was mistaken. 

All of which is respectfully submitted. 

Charles M. Walker, 

Chairman of Special Committee of In- 
vestigation. 

The Committee appends hereto a tran- 
script of all of the evidence taken before it 
at the meeting hereinbefore referred to. 



ALSO, 

The Special Committee appointed to in- 
spect and report upon the condition of the 
railway crossing at Joseph street and the 
Chicago & Alton Railroad, submitted the 
following report. 3 

Aid. Gallagher moved that the report 
be published and referred to the Corpora- 
tion Counsel for an ordinance. 

The motion prevailed. 



The following is the report: 

To the Honorable, the Mayor, and City 
Council : 

Gentlemen — Your Committee ap- 
pointed at the Council meeting on Novem- 
ber 9 th to inspect and report upon the 
condition of the railway crossing at Joseph 
street, where the recent dreadful killing by 
switching cars of the Alton & St. Louis 
R. R. of two school children occurred, 
would respectfully report that they per- 
sonally inspected the crossing alluded to, 
and found the following state of facts to 
there exist: 

That the crossing at Joseph street is used 
by three railway companies, the Chicago, 
Alton & St. Louis R. R., The Illinois Cen- 
tral R. R. and the Santa Fe R. R. That it 
is provided with gates operated by a single 
tower man. No flagman or other employe 
of any of the railroad companies using the 
crossing being stationed there, save the 
single tower man aforesaid. We also 
learned that a large amount of switching is 
being performed at this crossing and that 
what is known as the "kicking" of cars, or 
pushing of them, over the crossing, by 
locomotives which give the cars a momen- 
tum, and are then detached from the re- 
maining car or cars, thereby losing control 
over them, is of frequent occurrence. We 
also found that in view of the great danger 
to the public at crossing at which this 
"kicking" of cars is practiced, the 
18th rule for yardmen of the Chi- 
cago, Alton & St. Louis R. R. Co. 
provides, that M where cars when cut 
off pass over or along a traveled street, 
sidewalk or pathway, a man must be sta- 
tioned upon the forward car in such po- 
sition as to give warning to any person 
who may be in danger," a rule that of it- 
self shows the fear of calamities resulting 
from this practice, and a rule that we were 
informed was not observed at the time of 
the awful death of the girls herein alluded 
to. 

In view of these circumstances, and to 
prevent further appalling and probable re- 
currences at this and other surface cross- 
ings, your Committee would recommend 
that the City Council by an ordinance, to 
be at once prepared by the Law Depart- 
ment, provide : that at any and all the prin- 
cipal street railroad crossings at which 
men are employed as tower men, flagmen

shall also be stationed by railway com- 
panies using such open surface crossings. 
The tower men being in most, if not in 
all cases too far from the scene of im- 
minent danger to the public, and in all, 
cases so placed as to be incapable of giv- 
ing timely warning to persons passing over 
the tracks, and it may well be added their 
other duties frequently diverting their at- 
tention from the crossing. 

We further recommend that the practice 
of "kicking" cars over and across all 
street crossings within the city limits, be 
prohibited by the ordinance to be prepared 
by the Law Department and heretofore re- 
ferred to, the same being at such cross- 
ings in all cases an unnecessary expedient 
merely to save railwav companies the time 
and trouble consequent upon retaining 
connection with a car or cars and their safe 
propulsion to the desired point.

Office of the 
Counsel to the Corporation, 
Chicago, Nov. 28th, 1896. 

To the Honorable, Hie City Council: 

Gentlemen— By an order of your Hon- 
orable Body, passed at your meeting held 
on the 23rd inst.,this office was asked to 
furnish an opinion "as to the legality of an 
extended exclusion of traffic and ordinary 
public uses from streets within park dis- 
tricts, and as to whether or not any limit 
exists to the boulevarding of the public 
thoroughfares, highways and streets of this 
municipality, and the consequent df flec- 
tion of our streets from their proper uses as 
channels of trade and highways of the 
people." 

In reply, I beg to say that the matter has 
been referred to me, and that 1 think the 
act of the General Assembly, in force July 
1st, 1895, which is referred to in the order 
asking for an opinion, answers these ques- 
' tions. This act provides "that every 
Board of Park Com
